520 |a An exceptionally complete overview of the latest developments in the field of PDEs. There are numerous examples and the emphasis is on applications to almost all areas of science and engineering. There is truly something for everyone here. —Applied Mechanics Review (Review of First Edition) Overall, it is a useful book for teaching, a rich source of examples, and I am happy to have it on a shelf of my library. —UK Nonlinear News (Review of Second Edition) The revised and enlarged third edition of this successful book presents a comprehensive and systematic treatment of linear and nonlinear partial differential equations and their various current applications.  
520 |a Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers, Third Edition, improves on an already complete and accessible resource for senior undergraduate and graduate students and professionals in mathematics, physics, science, and engineering. It may be used to great effect as a course textbook, a research reference, or a self-study guide 
520 |a * Special emphasis on compactons, intrinsic localized modes, and nonlinear instability of dispersive waves with applications to water waves and wave breaking phenomena. * New section on the Lorenz nonlinear system, the Lorenz attractor, and deterministic chaos, and new examples of nonlinear quasi-harmonic waves, modulational instability, nonlinear lattices, and the Toda lattice equation. * Over 1000 worked-out examples and end-of-chapter exercises with expanded hints and answers to selected exercises. * Two new appendices on some special functions and their basic properties, Fourier series, generalized functions, and Fourier and Laplace transforms, with algebraic and analytical properties of convolutions and applications. * Many aspects of modern theory that will put the reader at the forefront of current research. * Completely updated list of references and enlarged index.  
520 |a In an effort to make the book more useful for a diverse readership, updated modern examples of applications have been chosen from areas of fluid dynamics, gas dynamics, plasma physics, nonlinear dynamics, quantum mechanics, nonlinear optics, acoustics, and wave propagation.   The book gives thorough coverage of the derivation and solution methods for all fundamental nonlinear model equations, such as Korteweg–de Vries, Camassa–Holm, Degasperis–Procesi, Euler–Poincaré, Toda lattice, Boussinesq, Burgers, Fisher, Whitham, nonlinear Klein–Gordon, sine-Gordon, nonlinear Schrödinger, nonlinear reaction-diffusion, and Euler–Lagrange equations. Other topics and key features include:   * Improved presentations of results, solution methods, and proofs. * Solitons, gravity-capillary solitary waves, and the Inverse Scattering Transform.
